Corvallis School District 509J, OR.
Designed for helping teachers improve classroom instruction with the help of tests, this handbook highlights the different kinds of tests that indicate important things about student performance: (1) teacher-made tests used to assess student learning; (2) diagnostic tests, prepared by a test publishing company; (3) achievement tests, prepared and published outside the district and administered nationally. Many things can influence how a particular student scores on a test, nevertheless, understanding local and national percentile scores along with stanine figures and scaled scores can relate information about a student's performance to aid the teacher in directioning classroom instruction. A procedure for teachers to use with parents is offered to help find consistent patterns of achievement or look for discrepancies in that pattern. (CE)
